If you haven’t picked up on it yet, I’m a big fan of lists…and this may be my favorite list yet! I looooove Christmas movies, so I thought it would be fun to share the ones that I watch every year. I’ve organized them in the typical sermon fashion (alliteration with numbered subpoints.)


1. White Christmas

I may or may not watch this more than once every year. It’s the quintessential Christmas movie. And I may or may not have reenacted the dining car scene while taking a train trip up the east coast.

2. It’s A Wonderful Life

I may or may not have dressed up as ‘Mary walking home from the school dance in a bathrobe’ for a Christmas party one time.

3. Christmas in Connecticut

I may or may not have….actually I don’t have a fun story for this one, but it is one of my favorites anyways.

4. Holiday Inn

Before there was White Christmas, there was Holiday Inn…which now that I think of it would have been an appropriate name for the movie White Christmas.


5. A Charlie Brown Christmas

If you don’t read Luke 2 in a Linus voice in your head, is it even Christmas?

6. How the Grinch Stole Christmas

I’m a devout original cartoon Grinch person. Sorry Jim Carey people, but it’s just not the same.

7. The Muppet Christmas Carol

This is the best version of A Christmas Carol. Change my mind


8. A Christmas Story

My grandparents may or may not have a leg lamp in their living room…

9. Elf

This is possibly the most quotable of all Christmas movies (right up there with A Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation.)


10. The Nativity Story

This is such a beautiful movie that truly helps me visualize the true Christmas story. I’m sure it’s not 100% accurate, so take its artistic interpretation with a grain of salt.

Comment and let me know which ones you would have added! I love hearing about other families Christmas traditions.
